Things to consider before buying a wooden handle knife

Pay attention to where and how you’re going to use the knife before deciding on a handle material. For example, if your plan is only occasional cutting then any type of wood will do but regular exposure may cause stains or failures due hard water damage so look into this more carefully than others might need

Caring tips for wooden handle knives

  • Wood handles are sturdy but still fragile against certain things. If you expose them too long periods of time to water, it can result in making the wood softer and reducing durability which makes your knife more susceptible for warping or cracking when being repeatedly wetted-and dried out after every use! To avoid these problems always wash knives by hand rather than putting into dishwasher regardless how dirty they might seem since highheat+ chemy = bad juju that damages both blade AND handle over extended uses
  • Wood handles are vulnerable to the effects of moisture. To prevent warping and cracking, it's important that your knife has an oiled surface which can penetrate deep into its wood fast enough so as not have any adverse effects on how well they perform over time due lack durability after regular use in kitchen tasks like chopping vegetables or fileting fish Maintaining a sharp blade is easier than ever before with all sorts if high quality oils available at grocery stores now days!
  • You can leave the handle of your brush in any cup or bowl filled with oil for up to two weeks before it begins soaking. Just make sure you rub all over every inch, applying as much pressure if needed until there are no more pores left unclosed than necessary! Once done washing out whatever container was used (and replaced by fresh soap), give that part an extra good scrubbing too - especially near where handles meet bristles because this may be why they've been prone towards cracks lately..
